  • Description

    Big G as in George Coleman, Sr, the legendary tenor saxophonist is the featured artist here on Brian Charette's latest album. George Coleman is the recipient of 2015 NEA (The National Endowment for the Arts) Jazz Masters Awards, the highest honour USA gives to a jazz musician.

    For B-3's most adventurous and talented practitioner Brian Charette who has known the Coleman father and son for more than a couple of decades, this recording materialized as a musical homecoming.

    "Both B-3 stylist and student, serious jazz scholar and glitzy entertainer, Charette is a burning soloist who understands the tradition of the Hammond B-3 as well its future - just as certainly as he understands his place in that lineage." - Ken Micallef, DownBeat

    Brian Charette: Hammond b3
    George Coleman: tenor saxophone
    Vic Juris: guitar
